Application view


Portals is an AR experiment that reinterprets René Magritte's paintings as augmented reality sculptures.

Magritte’s work frequently displays a collection of ordinary objects in an unusual context, giving new meanings to familiar things. His use of different points of view and windows as objects that modify and flip functionality in a visual composition is notable, especially In today’s AR situation, where digital portals and filters of are a common.

In this experiment four of Magritte’s paintings were treated with an AR reinterpretation to live in digital 3D space and be explored from different points of view.
